    Buckeyes are 5-0 for the first time in a long time, and the good thing is, that there is plenty of room for improvement. After losing star forward Lisa Grubb in the season opener with an ACL tear, the Buckeyes have found several different players to step up and fill the void left by Grubb. Emily Gilbert is having a sterling early season and the goalkeeping has really been one of the strengths of the team early on. The upset victory of then #6 Virginia, and in-state rival Cincinnati, has catapulted the Bucks to # 12 in the NSCAA rankings and #24 in the Soccerbuzz rankings. Good things are sure to follow and I'll be glad to be there. Big Ten play starts Friday vs Iowa. Go Bucks!!

    I saw the Buckeyes game against UC last week. Very impressive!. They pretty much controlled the game. Excellent play to feet, and very good in the air. Good luck to the Bucks down the road!

    Buckeyes end their match vs Iowa with a 1-1 tie. Classic example of having a lapse towards the end of the game (88th minute) and giving up a goal. Have to give the Hawkeyes credit, they didn't quit and they were able to salvage a tie on the road. Emily Gilbert and Colleen Hoban were bright spots during this match though. They are having career seasons thus far and are gaining more confidence with each match. OSU has been consistantly out shooting the early competition, and when they can finish more consistantly will be tough to beat. Even with the tie, it's their best start in history. Youngtown State is next, and barring an unforseen upset will be poised to extend their best start ever. GO BUCKS!

    Buckeyes off to their best start in history! OSU is now #11 (highest ranking ever).2nd in the Great Lakes region only behind Notre Dame. Buckeyes continue Big Ten play this weekend vs Indiana and Purdue. It seems as if the Big 10 is down this year, Indiana hasn't had much success and Michigan has had it tough early as well. Hopefully the Bucks can continue their strong play and parlay the poor showing thus far of the league into a strong position into the post season. It's still early, a lot of soccer left but I'm optomistic! Go Bucks!
